The Maharashtra Government is issuing online caste validity certificates to students which has led to the clearance of a large number of applications in quick time.
The online facility was launched by then Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan.
“There are large number of applications, seeking caste validity certificates, pending at difference offices across the state and we have decided to start issuing caste validity certificates online to the students from December 6,” Minister for Social Justice Shivajirao Moghe had said while launching the scheme in Yavatmal.
Special courts at all the six revenue divisions in the state had been set up which hear and dispose of the pending atrocity cases.
“The state government has also decided to celeberate the birth centenary of former Chief Minister Late Vasantrao Naik and the Marathwada Agriculture Univerity would be named after Naik,” Moghe said.
The caste validity certificate has been made compulsory even at the time of registration for the admission process in colleges.
A caste validity certificate simply states one’s caste while a caste validity certificate validates the caste certificate. For this certificate, along with the caste certificate, many other documents are required and one has to finally appear in front of the caste scrutiny committee. This certificate is a must for getting benefits of reservation in educational institutes and government jobs.
